With the buzz of the draft and free agency now winding down, it is time to start planning for your 2012 fantasy football team.

The key to dominating a draft is finding value that your non-obsessive opponents will not be able to, and the easiest place to start looking for that value is in the rookie class.

This year in particular there are a number of skilled position players that will make huge contributions to their team.

This is a list of rookies who will be especially strong fantasy players this year; so while “that guy” is asking if Tiki Barber is still available, you should be getting great value from a mid-to-late-round selection of one of these five players.

Note: These players were picked based on their role with the team that drafted them, as well as their developmental progress. A player’s production in college can be a good indicator of this; for example, Georgia Tech wideout Stephen Hill is a great prospect for the Jets and fills a need at receiver, but he is too raw to have a fantasy impact immediately and his average college production reflects that.
